Right now i have a 1280x1024 resolution monitor and my games run smooth. I want a newer wide screen monitor , but im afraid i will loose frames as my GPU isn't that great. What wide-screen resolutions take about the same GPU power as 1280x1024 or even less? screen size in inches does not matter to much for me

1440x900 is close. Actually a little less.
1280x1024=1313720
1440x900=1296000
Although going from a 4x3 1280x1024 to 15x9 1440x900 monitor you lose valuable verticle space.
You will have to scroll web page ,documents,spreadsheets etc to see the entire page.

1600x900 would be just a little over, but you shouldn't be losing that much performance..
here are three, one w/o speakers, one w/speakers and one w/speakers and a tuner.

The "x" in 1366x768 is the multiplication sign... do the math.
